Edwards Ferry Crossing Maps – June 27

8:00 AM, June 27:

Second Corps remains at Poolesville for the time being.  Crawfords’ Division crosses the lower bridge.  Buford’s Cavalry Division begins crossing, while Gregg’s Division continues to cover approaches to Edwards Ferry.

Noon, June 27:

It is unclear when elements of Second Corps leave Poolesville, but the Corps headquarters remained through the day.  Buford’s Division proceeded cross the Monocacy River further north.  Crawford’s Division continued its march toward Poolesville.  Gregg’s Division continues to protect the western approaches to the crossing.  Sixth Corps arrives after a long march up Leesburg Pike.  Behind them is Stannard’s Vermont Brigade.

7:00 PM, June 27:

Again, at least the headquarters of Second Corps remains in Poolesville.  Crawford’s Division continues to clear the road from Edwards Ferry, complaining of other elements wagons blocking the road.  Sixth Corps crosses on both bridges.  Stannard’s Brigade forms the rear guard on the east side of the crossing, while Gregg’s Division performs the same role to the west.

Midnight, June 27:

All elements clear the bridges, with Gregg’s cavalry the last to cross.
